The Desert fox by Henry Hathaway( Visual )
3 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A principios de los años cuarenta Afrika Korps, la fortaleza de Rommel, dominaba Áfríca del Norte. Pero las cosas cambiaron y cuando se dió cuenta de que su Fuhrer, a quien él había jurado lealtad, estaba destruyendo Alemania, su gran sentido del deber lo impulsó a una conspiración contra Hitler. Enfocada al periodo tardío de su carrera, esta película lo retrata como un soldado dedicado, apegado a sus hombres y un devoto del arte de la guerra de manera digna y disciplinada. El zorro del desierto es una profunda mirada a uno de los más respetados militares tácticos de los tiempos modernos, abiertamente admirado por aquellos que secundaron su combate y los que lo enfrentaron
The desert fox the story of Rommel ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1990 and 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rommel was a brilliant military tactician. Unfortunately, Adolph Hitler thought that he too was a military genius and demands more of Rommel than he's able to provide. Rommel incurs Hitler's wrath by retreating in North Africa, but since Rommel is a war hero he is virtually "untouchable". Rommel joins in a plot to assassinate the Fuhrer. The attempt fails, and Rommel's complicity is discovered. He is given a choice: either face a horrible death by torture or commit suicide. Rommel opts for the latter. The official story given to the press is that Rommel died heroically of his war wounds
